While filling in just about all of his free time with touring, Turner kept recording, and released the EP The Real Damage and a DVD, All About the Destination, in 2007. His next album, Love Ire & Song, was due in the midst of more live appearances in March of 2008. Turner's label signed a distribution deal with Epitaph
in the United States in late 2008. The end result was his Poetry of the Deed in September 2009, his first release stateside. In addition, Epitaph
also reissued Love Ire & Song in the U.S. Later that year, Turner released a stellar solo acoustic cover of Bruce Springsteen
's "Thunder Road" as a single via Suburban Home Records
, and followed it with the album England Keep My Bones in June of 2011. In 2012, Turner released Last Minutes & Lost Evenings, a 15-track, handpicked collection of album cuts and rarities intended to introduce the fiery Englishman to an American audience. It was followed in 2013 by his fifth studio album, the Burbank, California-recorded Tape Deck Heart. Later in the year he released the brief, ten-song Buddies EP in collaboration with songwriter Jon Snodgrass
. In 2014, Turner was set to release a compilation, The Third Three Years, which followed two previous collections -- The First Three Years (2009) and The Second Three Years (2012) -- and collected demos, rarities, and cover versions.
In 2015, Turner returned with Positive Songs for Negative People, a collection of all-new material. ~ Chris True, Rovi
